Just after New Years, I discovered there is a Lego store across the way from the Apple store at the Crossgates Mall in Albany.
I didn't have Legos when I was a kid. Then, when my kid was 10 years old, we had lots of Legos. He grew out of his interest in them, and we gave most of them away.
We had time to kill while we were waiting for our Apple appointment, so I went in to look around. It occurred to me this might be a good thing to do on Sunday afternoons to unwind after the morning church circuit is done.
So it began. I bought Poe Dameron's X-Wing Fighter. On Sunday afternoons I assemble 1 bag of bricks.
What follows is a photo journal of the build.

About half way through Silas figured out what I was doing, so we worked on the second half of the project together.
Meanwhile, on a subsequent trip to the Apple store to pick up the repaired computer I picked up the next project: the Sith TIE Fighter.
